This weekend in KL sees a string of markets catered to your Christmas gift hunt—or you can indulge in desserts instead

1. Try the limited edition The Winter Explorer Menu at all Haagen-Dazs stores, till mid-February 2019

Haagen-Dazs recently unveiled two new limited edition mochi ice cream flavours: Tiramisu Mochi and Cream Cheese Mochi. And with those comes an inspiration to create extraordinary creations that are meant to transport you to Europe. The Winter Explorer Menu features Bistro Paris (a cheesecake base delicately paired with a combination of Cream Cheese Mochi and Macadamia Nut ice cream as well as Raspberry sorbet, with fresh kiwi slices, grapes and nuts on the side); and Gondola Tiramisu (tempered chocolate in the shape of a round gondola filled with Tiramisu Mochi, Coffee and Vanilla ice cream, fresh cream, caramel and nut brittles). It's perfect for sharing so call your friends and family for an afternoon of sweet treats.
